Blame Someone Else Day

Blame Someone Else Day is an annual worldwide holiday devoted to blaming other people. It’s a very common practice in society – it’s easier to pin the blame on someone else than to admit one’s own mistakes! The holiday is celebrated on April 13.


The history of Blame Someone Else Day is not reliably known. The holiday itself affects a lot of people. No desire to go to work – blame the weather (but by no means laziness!), not getting enough sleep – blame the teachers who gave you a lot of assignments, but not a bad daily schedule of tasks and responsibilities, etc. Shifting blame is a way to hide your own shortcomings.

The habit of blaming others is even described in the Bible. The apple debacle happened because Adam blamed Eve for everything and then even shifted the blame onto God, because he created Eve! We urge everyone today to think about this subject and get rid of the habit of constantly shifting the blame to other people or other objects.

Interesting facts

  • On the subject of shifting blame, comedian F. Wilson in 1970 popularized Eve’s phrase from the Bible explaining a man’s act-“The Devil made me do it.”
  • Constantly shifting the blame if you are a member of a team will eventually lead to a loss of reputation and lower the trust of employees as well as management.

How to celebrate

Start today to get rid of the habit of shifting responsibility. Think about the problem that occurred and break it down, what were the conditions, the factors of its occurrence, to understand how much of what happened depended specifically on your actions.

Spread the word about the holiday on social media. Let more people know about it!
